My 14 year old daughter is overweight. . She has severe social anxiety (had since she was 4) so I don’t know if sports are a good idea

My 15 year old daughter is also overweight. She has expressed so much sadness over it. She and I decided to join weight watchers together. We also go to the gym together a couple times a week. Even loosing just a few pounds per week has given her a huge confidence boost. Another change I made was I keep the junk food out of the house. I keep fruit cut up in the fridge, nonfat greek yogurt, cut up veggies and we have switched to almond milk ( my daughter drank a gallon of milk a week) gold fish crackers instead of chips.
You could even possibly take your daughter to see a nutritionist and help her come up with an eating plan.
I know people might say we don't want our daughters to focus on their weight but we know loosing just a little will help their anxiety- and actually we are focusing on their health.
